Update number of nations in region?

14-11-2003, 15:33
Hi there

How come my region tells me it has 8 nations, while the table showing the nations right below that number only shows 4?

Is there any way to make the game update the table faster?

Not unless you can skip forward in time.

You have to wait for the next update for such changes to be rendered.

Im just wondering why the game doesnt update the table at the same time as it updates the number.

Oh well.

The number is updates all the time, while updating the table is only done once a day as it is a lot of work for the system. It may not seem that much effort for small regions, but when a region has hundreds or thousands of nations in it and some continuously move in/out, it's just way too much to keep up with in 'real time'.

Note the difference between the "[List all nations]" table in a region, and the UN daily report.

The list of all nations is updated in real-time, so always accurate.

The UN Daily Report, however, is only updated... uh, once per day.

Is this the same reason that when you endorse a nation and now it would have more endorsments that it doesnt update that new rep until the next region update?

Anything in the game that involves nation's stats will only occur once or twice a day (during the daily UN update and the off-hand 2-per-day issue update).
